Welcome to the Message in a bottle server located at Brighton UK
Enter a message here and it will be printed off, put in a bottle and thown from Brighton Pier on the south coast of England.
Where the bottle goes depends on a combination of wind and waves. Waves and tide are the most important factor and tends to carry things towards the west. The prevailing wind comes from the south west.
To use this fantastic service, enter your message here:
